Rare French Art Deco Chrome & Bakelite Electric Cigar Table Lighter by Calor



This very rare French Art Deco chrome and Bakelite electric cigar lighter is operated by lifting and tilting through forty five degrees. It was made by the French electric and gas company, Calor whose name appears in cut-out letters in a very Art Deco typeface on the cap of the lighter. The base of the lighter is in a deep, rich, shiny marbled, burgundy Bakelite and is fully signed to the underside with the manufacturer's name along with Allume Cigar, 80 watts, Module Depose. The heating element itself is topped with Mica and set into a ring of chrome. The chrome cap also bears a metal French Government tax stamp which all French lighters made between 1911 to 1945 had to carry. We have had this rare lighter working but it is being sold, for safety reasons, without a plug and is for. Display purposes only.
